Quick Game 8 - spoiler thread
This is the spoiler thread for Quick Game 8. To view this thread you must have submitted the game.
Did anyone actually meet any other civs in this game? And what strategies did you employ with regards to pop rushing?
(Sorry for being a bit late with the spoiler...)

Didnt meet anyone, didnt poprush
2 big mistakes - built 2 settlers (and got 1 from GH) and more importantly couldnt get out of my habit of roading tiles before moving off. The key I think was to get 10spt ASAP
40 warriors in 1950BC
Replayed and got 41 warriors in 2190BC with 2 towns and no free settler. Both towns making 10spt at end (Mecca size 5, Medina 2SE of wheat size 6).
Irrigated wheat, irrigated cow, mined sugar, mined wine.
Initially thought I would need the commerce from roading to afford unit costs (plus increased unit support from multiple towns), but this was unnecessary at 0 science
